WHAT WE OFFER

Escrow Services

Legal ownership can be a slippery slope in real estate, so in most cases, lenders require you to get a lender’s title insurance to protect them from possible defects. On the other hand, sellers may sometimes buy an owner title insurance to protect the property’s ownership rights. While it is optional, we highly recommend getting a policy since many title issues can arise without warning.

As part of our escrow services, we conduct a title search by looking at public records to get information on your property. From there, we check the property’s legal ownership status and verify if the title can be insured. Many times, issues can be so hidden that they are only uncovered after a transaction is closed.

While the buying process requires a thorough examination of public records, it is still difficult to ensure a 100% risk-free transaction. Problems like forged signatures or filing errors can easily lead to losses, so getting insurance from us serves as a safety net to ensure that you get coverage for a title defect. In addition, the policy will last throughout your ownership, so it is a worthwhile investment.

Title Services

Title Insurance

Title insurance protects from financial loss that result from defects to a property and ensure your best interests are protected during a real estate transaction. Unlike other forms of insurance that protect from potential risks and threats, title insurance protects property owners from risks before the transaction is complete.

Title insurance can be broken down into two subcategories:

Owner’s Policy

An Owner’s Policy protects the property owner’s interests for as long as they own the property in question. This form of title insurance can protect a property owner from risks such as:

  • Lawsuits
  • Mortgage Issues
  • Deed Errors
  • Liens
  • and More

Lender’s Policy

In most real estate transactions, lenders require you to get a Lender’s Policy, or a loan policy, to protect them from possible defects. This form of title insurance protects the lender’s interests in the property in case there is an issue with the property.

While the buying process requires a thorough examination of public records, it is still difficult to ensure a 100% risk-free transaction. Problems like forged signatures or filing errors can easily lead to losses, so getting a title insurance policy serves as a safety net to ensure that you and the lenders get coverage for a title defect.

Title Search

During the title insurance process, we conduct a title search by looking at public records to get information on your property. From there, we check the property’s legal ownership status and verify if the title can be insured. Many times, issues can be so hidden that they are only uncovered after a transaction is closed.

For example, a property owner may list their property for sale, however, they may fail to indicate that there is a claim or a lien against the property. During a title search, our team will uncover any important information to protect you from making an offer or purchasing a property with legal or financial issues surrounding it.

Our standard is the current owner search, which involves checking public records related to the property’s current deed. However, we can also do more comprehensive searches to look for information on the previous owner. Properties that have gone through many ownership changes can be prone to title issues, so our search intends to verify if there are such concerns.
